My most memorable vomit on shoes experience happened in 1979, oddly enough at the Cape Cod Coliseum, during the opening notes of Celluloid Heroes, only it was more like "wading in vomit." Inside the CCC in August, it's about 115 degrees and about 99% humidity, so my best bud and I were in shorts in t-shirts only when we got heavily projectile vomited on from behind. Great concert, and one of the most disgusting evenings of my life. We did what we could to clean up, but the smell was on me until I got home and showered, and seemed to linger in his car for about a month.

I just thought I'd share that with you all! I'm sure you're better people for it!

Grievances: ("I got a lot of problems with you people!")- Frank Coastanza

1. I'm w/DogsinaPile on hip replacements. "early onset arthritis"...WTF???
2. Donna ruining too many Stella Blues to count with her completely off-key screaming of one word: "Shine!" Gives my wife ammunition every time.
3. Built to Last. (No wonder Jerry died after they made that piece of horse dropping)
4. Gate crashers. Yeah, they only toured 95% of the year. Guess you just HAD to get into that 2nd night at Irvine. Morons.
5. "Liberty" encore. I'd rather hear Glenn Beck cry about his fear for America.

Feats of Strength:
1. 1977
2. 10/29/77
3. Robert Hunter's lyrics. We wouldn't love these songs nearly as much without him.
4. Peanut butter and banana sandwiches after the show for a buck. Best cure for munchies ever.
5. Smiling at a stranger after sharing something amazing ( a killer Dew, a perfect Half-Step, whatever...and realizing they're not really strangers after all.
6. Just singin' Thank You! For a Real Good Time :-)

#5 is absolutely perfect.
